  • Rocky road bars

    • Jane on May 13, 2012

      I made these to take to a party so I cut them into small bites rather than bars. They were very popular - I think small is better than large as they are very rich. A gooey fudgy chocolate base is topped with pecans, dark chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. I put it in the fridge before cutting as it was very gooey, even when cooled down. Then I used a sharp knife that I dipped in hot water and cleaned between each cut. A good party dessert.

    • ssdrabek on September 10, 2012

      Yum....for next time need to bake an additional 13 minutes....kids said too much chocolate so next time use less chocolate chips and more mini marshmellows!

  • Whole wheat maple muffins

    • mjperkins on September 20, 2017

      I would increase the fruit and/or nuts to 1 cup total next time.

  • Strawberry clafoutis

    • mjperkins on May 01, 2017

      Excellent. This will be my go to clafoutis recipe.

  • Pumpkin buttermilk pancakes

    • vickster on January 03, 2016

      Needed way more buttermilk than called for in recipe. Added extra, then some regular milk to thin out even more. Used half the amount of sugar. Good flavor.

  • Naan

    • annieski on February 14, 2016

      Very good. Made 1/2 recipe, divided into thirds. Made 5 - 6 inch Naan.

  • Pumpkin granola

    • IvyManning on October 03, 2016

      Too moist, it ended up being 1 big sticky lump after I stored it. The Count Chococula cereal + brown sugar +maple syrup made it way way too sweet for us.

  • Bite-sized coconut macaroons

    • Aggie92 on February 13, 2014

      My go to coconut macaroon recipe. Equally delicious with either the rum or vanilla extract. Coconut lovers go crazy for these lovely little bites.

  • Nutella biscotti

    • Aggie92 on January 21, 2016

      Meh....I really wanted to like these because I am a huge Nutella fan. Sadly they did not taste like Nutella at all. They just tasted vaguely like chocolate, mostly due to the chocolate chips.

  • Applesauce drop scones

    • Christine on November 02, 2012

      It's hard to believe a recipe this simple can be so delicious! I did stray from the recipe bit though -- First, instead of using only all-purpose flour, I replaced 1 1/2 cups of it with whole wheat flour. Second, I accidentally forgot to sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on top before baking, but I didn't feel like I was missing anything since the scone itself is plenty tasty in it's own right. The inside is perfectly tender, they're just sweet enough, and the cinnamon flavor really comes through. Finally, I'm a huge fan of drop scones since they are so much easier to deal with than overly sticky dough that's a nightmare to cut into triangles, BUT this dough was absolutely perfect for cutting and shaping, if you so desire. It took some elbow grease to get all the ingredients combined, but once that was done, the dough was firm and not sticky at all. It was a breeze to form into a disc and cut into triangles and they came out beautifully.

  • Apple walnut muffins

    • apattin on July 26, 2017

      Came out looking like hockey pucks. I don't think there is enough leavening but I should try adding baking soda to counteract the buttermilk.

  • Chocolate covered strawberry Swiss roll

    • Thredbende on February 17, 2014

      This is eye crossingly delicious. The picture accurately shows how it kinda flattens out after rolling. Next time I make it, I will plop it into a French bread baking pan to chill into a rounder shape. I used vanilla bean paste so the cake was slightly tan and speckly. The cream cheese filling is the best cream cheese frosting I have ever tasted.

    • Bloominanglophile on January 08, 2016

      I used this recipe just for the batter to make a jelly roll for my trifle. Simple recipe that yielded a nice sponge cake that didn't crack upon gentle unrolling. Did have some unevenness in the thickness of the spongecake, due to my pan warping in the oven--will have to look for a better jelly roll pan!

  • Milk chocolate chocolate chip cookies

    • ssdrabek on September 28, 2012

      seriously my favorite chocolate chip cookies!!

  • Easy chocolate cupcakes

    • squirrellypoo on March 23, 2012

      This is my go-to chocolate cake recipe. I must have made it at least 50 times now, it's so easy and delicious!

  • Pumpkin donut muffins

    • Bloominanglophile on December 05, 2013

      I have made these twice now, and I think they have gained "family favorites" status. They remind one of sugar coated donuts, even if the texture is still that of a muffin. The pumpkin taste isn't as strong as in other muffins I have had, but I don't mind--they are delicious! They are also quite rich--I can't eat more that 2 in one sitting. Of course, they are best the first day, but they are more than decent after that. A quick recipe to boot!

  • Hot artichoke dip

    • Beacooks on September 25, 2017

      Tasty quick recipe. Quartered for two. Perfect amount.

  • Classic mojito

    • Yildiz100 on August 15, 2017

      I like that this recipe does not call for simple syrup. You just stir to dissolve the muddling sugar before adding the soda. It worked well-no problems dissolving and the sweetness was just right. My lime was very juicy so I used a bit less than a whole lime, and added soda to taste.

  • Apple and red grape crisp

    • Globegal on May 25, 2016

      Crumble topping didn't get as dark. This is very flavorful. Used up red grapes had in the fridge for over a month. Simple to make.

  • Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies

    • sldoug on June 26, 2016

      These are the best and perfect and most delicious chocolate chip oatmeal cookies I've ever made, and I've made this recipe approximately one million times. I use a cookie scoop for uniformity and they bake in 12 minutes in my oven (although they are probably crispier than mainstream America might prefer them).

  • S’more cookie bars

    • sldoug on May 22, 2016

      Made as directed except used the whole tub of marshmallow cream (just over two cups), the king sized Hershey's bars are now "XL" bars, and I followed the instructions for 7 whole sheets of graham crackers, not bothering to measure after I ground them. I baked the bars for the full 35 minutes since I like my cookies (and presumably cookie bars) on the done side and they were delicious, definitely very much like s'mores. I liked them best while still warm because everything was nice and chewy, but even the next day they were plenty tasty.

  • Yeasted nectarine coffee cake

    • sldoug on August 23, 2015

      Wow, this was pretty terrible. I added extra milk to the batter because it was so thick that I could have kneaded it like dough. Even with an extra tablespoon or two of milk, the cake was dense and dry and tough. Will not be making this one again.

  • Baked apple fritters

    • anya_sf on March 20, 2017

      Even regular lowfat yogurt will work in this recipe instead of sour cream. These are a family favorite.

  • Strawberry Belgian waffles

    • anya_sf on June 04, 2017

      I used half white whole wheat flour, half white flour. The amount of freeze-dried strawberries seemed skimpy to me, so I increased it to a cup. The batter was extremely thick, but I did not thin it, thinking it was supposed to be that thick. The waffles turned out fine, but they did not spread much at all. Next time I'd add maybe 1/4-1/2 cup extra buttermilk. I think the batter should be thick but not *that* thick. The amount of dried strawberries was good (the full cup), but I still found the flavor somewhat lacking. I suggest topping the waffles with fresh strawberries, in addition to maple syrup. Maybe 1-2 Tbsp sugar in the batter would also help. I got 6ish (because they did not spread, most were not full waffles) smaller round waffles.

  • Raspberry donut muffins

    • anya_sf on July 02, 2017

      These are very quick to make. I didn't bother to chop the raspberries, since they broke apart a bit during mixing (and I was feeling lazy), but the smaller pieces do work better than whole berries. Spreading the butter on top of the hot muffins worked OK, but I did not find it as easy as brushing the muffin tops with melted butter. I got 11 muffins. My family loved them.

  • Homemade thin mints

    • I Made That!

      I would go with a milk chocolate, or at least their mildest dark chocolate. I found that the mint was fighting with the intense chocolate flavor and not necessarily winning.
